Kit Advice

Each competitor will have individual needs so we advise that competitors add or subtract items from the Suggested Items list, however both the Medical List and Equipment List are compulsory and competitors will not be allowed to participate in the race if a piece of compulsory kit is missing.  

Whilst taking part in the Jungle Ultra you will be required to carry your own kit for the duration of the race so it is in your interest to build the lightest and most useful kit bag possible, whilst still including the compulsory items.  It is important that you include equipment, food and clothing that you will find most helpful in succeeding in your race - your kit selection forms an important part of your race strategy so it is important to ensure that you have everything you need.

Any travel bags in excess of your race backpack and kit can be handed in to Beyond The Ultimate at the designated time and location prior to the race start.  All travel bags should be lockable.
